After reading the performance specs on the 2009 Challenger SRT with manual trans, I think Edmunds should do a re-match with the Bullitt. After all , Edmunds gushed so much over the SRT Challenger's performance and now it appears that the 2008 automatic SRT Challenger may have been a ringer from Dodge.

I followed a new Challenger yesterday for about 2 miles, and the driver was throttle-happy..Not really a Chrysler fan, had a 66 Barrucuda w/hypo V-8, endured approx 85k miles., finally gave it to wifey..Had a 60 Dodge Matador V-8, kept 8k miles and traded on a new 60 Impala conv w/348ci V-8. Favorite car was a 1971 SS350 Camaro, kept for 90k miles--18 months of use. Bought the wife an 82 Z-28 new, sounded bad, nice looking, but was a wimpy performer., traded it on a new 87 Buick Electra T-Type..wife's car..and the beat goes on..
Locally 51grand is the selling price for the Challenger..not in my future!!!
The Bullitt is still on my shopping list..will pursue end of August..My favorite purchasing time...EOM..
Thanks for the input---What's the downside of the Bullitt?????
My son in Detroit purchased an 08 Chrysler 300 w/Hemi 6 mos ago after owning 7 Caddys..Loves the car and the deal was outstanding..I wish him luck..
Found a BP station in Sarasota that sells only non-ethanol gas..Finally got some good old-fashion gas of 93 oct in the SC V-6 GT..breath of freshness..Paid 3.92/gal, 10% incr in MPGs, and the the S/C loved it also..

No down side at all- I , too, owned and drove many a 60's era muscle cars.( all GM including 3 Vettes from the early 70's ) Loved them all , but the Bullitt is quicker , handles better, is safer , has the muscle car swagger and oh, my God , whatta a beautiful exhaust note ! Plus , it looks like a sleeper !
